The Company enabled payouts in North America with Visa Direct, further expanding and enhancing its portfolio of real time payout options, fully reconciled and net settled thereby simplifying the payment process, improving efficiency and providing significant benefits to its merchant customers. Nuvei launched card issuing in Europe, a new line of business for the Company further expanding its product offerings and solution capabilities to its merchant customers in the region and presenting incremental market opportunities.

Advertisement Article content Financial Outlook For the three months and the year ending December 31, 2021, Nuvei anticipates total volume (1) , revenue and Adjusted EBITDA (2) to be in the ranges below. Considering the strong performance during the three months ended September 30, 2021, where Nuvei exceeded the previously anticipated revenue and Adjusted EBITDA (2) outlook, as well as continuing momentum in the business, management is raising the financial outlook for the year ending December 31, 2021. The updated financial outlook and specifically the Adjusted EBITDA (2) reflects the Company’s strategy to accelerate its investment in distribution, marketing, innovation, technology as well as the infrastructure resulting from the recent acquisition of Mazooma. The Company expects these investments will support its growth plan. The financial outlook also includes the recently completed acquisitions of Simplex and Paymentez. Advertisement Article content (1) Total volume does not represent revenue earned by the Company, but rather the total dollar value of transactions processed by merchants under contractual agreement with the Company. Total volume is explained in further detail in the Company’s most recent Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. (2) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted net income are non-IFRS measures. See “Non-IFRS Measures”. (3) “Medium-term” and “long term” have not been defined by Nuvei nor does Nuvei intend to define them. These targets should not be considered as projections, forecasts or expected results but rather goals that may result from the execution of our strategy. These growth targets are fully qualified and based on a number of assumptions described under the heading “Forward-Looking Information” of this press release.

Advertisement Article content Non-IFRS Measures Nuvei’s unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. The information presented in this press release includes non-IFRS financial measures, namely Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per basic share, and Adjusted net income per diluted share. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the Company’s results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s financial information reported under IFRS. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per basic share, and Adjusted net income per diluted share are used to provide investors with a supplemental measure of the Company’s operating performance and thus highlight trends in Nuvei’s core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. The Company’s management also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. Nuvei’s management also uses non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of management compensation. The Company’s management believes Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per basic share and Adjusted net income per diluted share are important supplemental measures of Nuvei’s performance, primarily because they and similar measures are used widely among others in the payment technology industry as a means of evaluating a company’s underlying operating performance. See the “Non-IFRS Measures” section of our management’s discussion and analysis for a description and reconciliation of these measures. Advertisement Article content Forward-Looking Information This press release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including Nuvei’s outlook on total volume, revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the three months and the year ending December 31, 2021 as well as medium and long-term targets on Total volume, Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA.
